Often we only find Health and Well-Being after our health has become a bit shaky, we have experienced pain, and we no longer can take our health for granted.
For me, this process started just before the year 2000, when I developed pain in my body in my late thirties. (Link to My Health Journey) My pain was in my ribcage and woke me up every day in the early hours of the morning. To keep it short here, I had to work my way out of Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue (2003) and Breast Cancer (2007).
These health conditions taught me that I had to take responsibility for my health and for creating well-being in body, mind, heart and soul. On my way, I have learned that to have health and well-being in my life I have to look after my whole body, all levels of my being and keep my life in balance.
During my Breast Cancer journey, I thought I would write a book on how to support yourself holistically while recovering from cancer. But I quickly realised that I wanted to focus on health and well-being. I felt drawn to helping clients to stay healthy, find their balance and create a life they enjoy living.
I also realised that I’m more hands-on, practical and love to grow in all areas of my life. That’s why I felt a calling to become a health professional and was drawn to study Kinesiology in 2008, after experiencing the holistic approach of this empowering modality.
After graduating with a diploma of Kinesiology in 2010, I opened my Kinesiology clinic called “Whole Health Kinesiology”, and since then I enjoy working with clients, releasing their stress, allowing them to find balance and stillness and help them to transform their lives by connecting to their heart and their inner wisdom.
I believe in walking my talk, keeping my body healthy and listening to my heart and this has opened the next door in my life. I found this beautiful flowing Yoga style, called Dru Yoga, allowing me to feel balanced and aligned after every yoga class.
I wanted to learn the ancient wisdom of Dru Yoga, and in 2015 I had the opportunity to start my Dru Yoga teacher training in Melbourne.
After receiving my Diploma of Dru Yoga teaching in 2018, I have started teaching small Dru Yoga classes in a beautiful sunny room next to my Kinesiology clinic.
In my twenties, I worked in the IT industry, analysing the flow of data and information between people, departments and different computer systems. I love diving deep into everything and try to understand the essence of things.
Especially topics like brain function and plasticity, energy flow in the body and how we can use and integrate the latest research with ancient knowledge in practical ways spark my passion, and my heart blossoms when I’m sharing this wisdom in my workshops.
Since 2014 I run my Chakra Workshop called “Chakras, energy centres of light”, and it’s eight lessons continually evolve to match my client’s needs. The Chakra workshop is about understanding that we tune into the energy around us, that energy is part of our daily life and by honouring and understanding this ancient knowledge, we can create more balance in our life.
This year, I have started a short 2 hour Dru Yoga Discovery workshop to give my clients the opportunity to experience Dru Yoga and learn about how it creates balance the body, mind and soul and have any questions answered while we enjoy a cup of tea.
